Work in Progress!

Ostensibly, this is the latest and final addition to my geometric-spiral-shapes vessels series.  I like this guy the best, but I felt that way about all of them at this stage - just before bisque-ing.

Saggar "unveiled"!!

When last we visited, I was preparing a saggar container for a new piece to be fired therein. (see prior entry)

Well, here's the follow-up, post-firing (cone 2)

Container looks like a kind of sad, steroided roasted pork, upon emerging from the kiln:

Next, break on through the shell - feels like a dinosaur egg:

And the piece is revealed.  I didn't know what to expect, but let's just say I was underwhelmed:

Can you tell which is the saggar tray debris and which is my newest ceramic work of "art"?

Thus endeth my foray into Saggartown.
